THE HALF DECENT FOOTBALL MAGAZINE

22 August ~ Leicester City go into their match against Tottenham today with two wins out of two so far this season.  The visitors, on the other hand, have just one point from their opening two matches. In another early season match between the two, the roles were reversed. While Spurs had won three out of their opening five matches, Jurgen Klinsmann having scored six goals already, Leicester had managed just one point.

However, while Klinsmann again got himself on the scoresheet it was Leicester who were victorious. Julian Joachim put his team ahead on half time and David Lowe doubled the lead with three minutes left. Klinsmann pulled one back a minute later but it was Joachim again who made the game safe in injury time. Leicester would win just five more times that season though as they were relegated in 21st place, while Spurs finished seventh.
